Into the Breach

8B7D0BEE-5656-4490-A950-7BF4EA12C558“There’s been a database breach!” Harold, the head of IT, told the CEO.

“That’s terrible news,” the CEO said. “How widespread is it?”

“As far as we can tell, it’s limited to the northeast region,” Harold said, “But we’ve got our finest technicians working on trying to contain the breach.”

“Do whatever you have to do, Harold,” the CEO said. “I know you’ve got a deep bench on your team. We need a seamless solution and you have to get this breach taken care of before word gets out. The credibility of our data security and protection capabilities cannot be compromised. We can’t afford to lose this contract.”

“We’re all over it, sir,” Harold said.

“Good,” the CEO said. “I don’t want to be watching Rachel Maddow tonight and hear her give an in-depth exposé about how the Russians hacked our voter registration database…again!”
